A blog recently ran in a .com publication. Is this your story? Being Human
Now explores the new normal of being Unemployed, 55, and Faking Normal
Here is short portion of the blog:
"You know her. She is in your friendship circle, hidden in plain sight. She
is 55, broke and tired of trying to keep up appearances. Faking normal is
wearing her out. To look at her, you wouldn't know that her electricity was
cut off last week for non-payment or that she meets the eligibility
requirements for food stamps. Her clothes are still impeccable, bought in
the good times when she was still making money. But if you paid attention,
you would see the sadness in her eyes, hear that grace note of panic in her
otherwise commanding voice."
THOSE MOMENTS WHEN YOU JUST AREN'T FEELING IT.
I WOULDN'T SAY I HIT THE WALL, BUT I DEFINITELY FELT UNMOTIVATED THIS WEEK TO GET THINGS DONE. I FELT VERY UNINSPIRED DESPITE KNOWING I NEEDED TO GET THINGS DONE. I ALLOWED MYSELF TO JUST FEEL THAT WAY INSTEAD OF FAKING IT!

Five women have died in police custody in July. Raynetta Turner and Sarah Lee Circle Bear are the latest. Native Americans are killed by police in alarming numbers. Sandra Bland's family hopes their federal lawsuit will produce answers and accountability. A special prosecutor will investigate Raynetta Turner's death in custody. The Dept of Justice has released another report regarding Ferguson. And Sam Dubose's bottle of "gin" actually contained air freshener.
Dudes today are so wrapped up in avoiding reality that they don't realize how easy it is to be caught up in a life of faking. We are lions, but we were once cubs just as you are. We learned to hunt and how to go in for the kill.
Church holds "Drag Queen" gospel worship service, 7th grader stands up against teacher who insisted God was a myth, Man kills roommate after he thought he was turning into a zombie, Human DNA found in hotdogs, University bans Mexican Food as being culturally insensitive, Young socialist worship at Karl Marx's grave for a fee, The sex with robots conference was cancelled by Malasian government with some common sense, Death schools in South Korea teach kids not to commit suicide by faking their deaths in class, and other wacky stories from the Prison Planet.
Tonight we are discussing the pros and cons of faking it. It can be wearing fake, hair, nails, booty implants and beefing up the size of your chest. What about faking it in the bedroom?
Is being fake a necessary part of today's society? Well we are told to fake it till you make it so does this statement justify a certain amount of faking to survive.
Let's talk about it

This radio show for family members, caregivers, doctors, nuerologists and public awareness!
What do you know about them?
Are you waiting for yours?
Do you know how to handle a brain injury?
What are you doing to learn?
When are you going to understand?
What are you doing now?
When family members, caregivers, loved ones, and significant others give up helping, where do you go? Outpatient services don't help unless insurance is involved. Medical staff in communities nationwide misdiagnose, brush off, discharge or don't treat brain injuries survivors when they come in about ailments due to their brain injury. They state it's all in their mind, nothing is really wrong. When do medical professionals get involved with unpaid, volunteer community outreach for those involved with brain injuries in the community to understand? Why don't medical staff get involved with support groups on a voluntary basis? How many times do family members and old friends tell a brain injury survivor to get over yourself and stop faking the injury? EVERYDAY! They don't realize anything till it happens to them. Then it's too late.
HOW CAN THIS BE FIXED? START SUPPORTING YOUR NON-PROFIT BRAIN INJURY SUPPORT GROUPS. HELP ADVOCATE ABOUT WHO THE GROUPS ARE. SPREAD THE WORD. GET INVOLVED WITH MEETINGS AND CONFERENCES. CONTRIBUTE YOUR TIME.
IF YOU CAN'T DONATE TO A 501(C)(3) GOVERNMENT CERTIFIED NON-PROFIT ORGANIZATION , FIND OTHERS WHO CAN.
WE ARE A GLOBAL NON-PROFIT RESOURCE CENTER FOR NEUROLOGICAL IMPAIRMENTS AND BRAIN INJURY SO PEOPLE KNOW WHERE TO GO, WHO TO TALK TO, GROUP SERVICES, AND A POSITIVE ESTABLISHMENT WHERE INDIVIDUALS AREN'T JUDGED. JOIN US TODAY!
Sunny Giovanni takes the hot seat as we ask our very own lesbian (stud) a few steamy questions about gay sex. There are no holds barred so she has to answer each and every one of them. Then whe turn up the heat with the ladies of King Publication Group and ask them their take on terms of sex, what they expect from men in the bedroom, and what they think men expect from women. Is faking an orgasm ever okay? How kinky is too kink? And then we wrap up with a nice game of I Have Never, where everybody on the line takes a shot if they've done something that has been said. Who won't even remember their names after the show? Let's just hope it won't be our entire listening audience!
Join us Wednesday night 10 p.m. Eastern 7 p.m. Pacific as we discuss what some people are claiming is an epidemic in College Football. Clemson fans, despite walking away with a victory, continue to accuse UGA players of faking injuries in Saturday's monumental upset victory over College Football and SEC superpower UGA. Should College Football outlaw faking injuries? High profile critics of the tactic, like friend of the program Clemson Tom, say yes. Is this a bitchmade move that should be addressed or should the critics shut their pie holes and just enjoy the games? Let us know your opinion Wednesday night!
***Also, tune in for J.R.'s Best Bets of the Week at the end of the program to see if J.R. can stay perfect on the season with his 5 star locks!***
